Great thread!
Worlds simplest wheel truing stand. If you`re just building a single or more similar wheels there`s really no need to go further than this. A piece of rod (old wheelaxle) welded onto a piece of square tubing:

Simple press. Not very sturdy but good enough to press the crank out of a shovel

Here's some crimping pliers

Thought this was kinda cool, airplane building use, but could come in handy

I made a sweet metal hammer out of one of these gas canister caps...

All you have to do is put a peice of one inch OD pipe through the holes in the cap and weld it up, I used about a foot long handle and it works great as a hammer and as a dolly too. The best thing is that it cost me $10 from tractor supply and took about 5 minutes to make. Already straightened out an old fender and made a seat pan with it. Works like a champ...

And last but not least, I got a homemade phase converter so I can run my 3-phase mill & lathe off of residential 220 juice:

The Three phase converter...Holy shit.:D

I'm not understanding what's going on here. What am I missing?

Its for welding exhaust tubing together. The open spot in the clamp is where you make your spot welds.

Some torque converters made from sockets and wrenches bought at a pawn shop for $11. Makes retorquing head bolts on a Shovel a breeze.

There's a lot of them out there, but here's a tubing bender I built:

Pay no attention to the tubing in that photo, I just used thin wall tubing to make sure it would work. It built my frame like a champ. Plus I really liked having the air/hydraulic ram, super easy to get exact and repeatable bends.

I made a pretty handy litle invention today. i made a flange that mounts the top half of a shopvac directly onto a 55 gallon drum. definately decreases the power but still works great

g/box mainshaft nut socket, made with a piece of tube i had laying around and a piece of 1/4" plate drilled and filed to the size of the nut, then welded to the pipe, hole drilled in the pipe to take a tommy-bar,,

My simple valve guide removal tool. A long shank bolt that fits nicely in the guide and a nut ground to the O.D. of the guide. Grab you BFH and start hammering!

I have a jiffy stand I made out of some 2x4s screwed together, a pipe and a pipe flange..... It looks ugly but gets the job done.... kinda like a fat chick after midnight

Was about to build a trueing stand of "usual" design this weekend. Seeing this definetely changed my mind and saved a few hours of fabbing....Thanks! Gonna modify it a bit to use it as a balancing stand also. Using a hunk of 3" angle insteade of tube cause I have it available....Thanks again.
